- 1 tsp oil
- 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
- 2/3 c white basmati rice
- 1 c water
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 lime, juiced (please use the real thing here it is so much better)
In a saucepan, heat oil until hot
Add rice and stir for 1 minute, you are basically frying the rice in this step.
Add lime juice, stir for 1 minute more.
Add water and salt, bring to a boil
Cover and turn down to simmer until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 18-20 minutes. Do not over cook this or it gets mushy.
Add in the cilantro, stir, and serve
